and now for something different (don't follow the trend)

Are you bored seeing all this Lintel / BritPop / Cheinz and what have you thingies. Well now for something totally different than the current trend.

Check out the bottom posting in one of the German RC sailing forums : http://www.rc-network.de/forum/showt...m-22.04-in-USH

Comment from one of our top class RM skippers. Design is fast, points very high, neutral helm in the puffs and basically sails as stable as a well trimmed RM.

I've started some sketches of the "Ugly One" which is perhaps even more shoe like! Despite only having a 930mm LWL I'm hoping that with a very buoyant bow changing down a rig wont be so dependant on downwind control issues

I can't really see the SCOW working for an IOM or RM as giving up WL length on a boat limited in overall length is to much of a disadvantage.

This concept would certainly be something to look into for a 10R or perhaps even a RA where overhangs can be incorporated to an advantage in measurement.

I am also concerned about losing LWL and the impact on speed. However, in displacement mode my calculations are a 1m LWL hull can achieve 2.41 knots and a .93m LWL hull can achieve 2.36 knots = 0. 9% slower
On a plus side the more the Scow bow is heeled then the longer the LWL could become, a carefully engineered scow bow may almost achieve a 1m LWL @ 30 degrees heel for instance.

I'm jealous - that would work great for me. I invision folding down the seats on just one side for the sail boxes and boats and then having room for my three passengers still. When people say boating is expensive they weren't kidding!
Thanks,
Colin

I used 200g/m2 fiber glass and west systems resin (junior pack is more than enough for 1 IOM) One complete layer of cloth on the outside and approx 50% of the inside. I stripped down the' A' grade balsa myself from 48" x 4" x 1/8" (1200x100x3mm) There were approx 60ish strips.
When I built Primer I bought a pack of 10 balsa sheets the weights of each individual sheet varied from 36-70grams
Enjoy the build
Love the sailing
Mark

Interesting new design but don't think this one will take off as it doesn't comply to the IOM class rules since I can't see any bow bumper. And it seems to have been done in 2009. Nice to see some out of the box thinking though.

Hi Guy's,
I see a good discussion going on here about the merits of current design IOM's.

I've just built 2 IOM "Goth's" from Frank Russell here in Australia. Excellent boat, which of course follows current thinking - very narrow with chines.

Link - http://www.frankrusselldesign.com/index.htm

If you are interested in other classes he has plans for most including an updated flat panel Marblehead I'm in the middle of building. (New here - sorry about getting a bit off topic).
